A truck driver hauling a tractor-trailer load of computers
stops for a beer. As he approaches the bar he sees a big sign
on the door saying
"NERDS NOT ALLOWED-ENTER AT YOUR OWN RISK!"
He goes in and sits down.
The bartender comes over to him, sniffs, says he smells kind of
nerdy, asks him what he does for a living. The truck driver says
he drives a truck, and the smell is just from the computers he is
hauling. The bartender says OK, truck drivers are not nerds, and
serves him a beer.
As he is sipping his beer, a skinny guy walks in with tape around
his glasses, a pocket protector with twelve kinds of pens and
pencils, and a belt at least a foot too long. The bartender, without
saying a word, pulls out a shotgun and blows the guy away. The
truck driver asks him why he did that. The bartender said not
to worry, the nerds are over-populating Silicon Valley, and
are in season now. You don't even need a license, he said.
So the truck driver finishes his beer, gets back in his truck,
and heads back onto the freeway. Suddenly he veers to avoid an
accident, and the load shifts. The back door breaks open and
computers spill out all over the freeway. He jumps out and sees
a crowd already forming, grabbing up the computers. They are
all engineers, accountants and programmers wearing the nerdiest
clothes he has ever seen.
He can't let them steal his whole load. So remembering what
happened in the bar, he pulls out his gun and starts blasting
away, felling several of them instantly. A highway patrol
officer comes zooming up and jumps out of the car screaming
at him to stop.
The truck driver said, "What's wrong? I thought nerds were
"Well, sure." said the patrolman, "But you can't bait 'em."
